hamas, organically linked to it but it is here trying to broker an end to the cease-fire, it is not doing what many want it to do which is break with israel, instead what it is trying to do is broker a cease-fire in which it brings this conflict, this conflict to an end, and which it preserves the peace treaty with israel because there is a profound need on the part of the egyptian government to deal with their monumental economic problems. >> rose: and then we turn to a new documentary filmed cause the central park 5, made by ken burns, his daughter sarah burns, and also joined by raymond santana. >> police department and the prosecutors made huge glaring errors, not entertaining alternate narratives, making huge mistakes in procedures. >> little kids should not be under that kind of interrogation, that is outrageous, that they missed the actual rapist several times and couldn't get him and i think people have made reputations prosecutors is made reputations on this and they can't abide by the notion that they could say, you know, i am sorry, put a period at the end

-- the sources are saying that the lull in fighting simply allows, would allow hamas which has suffered tremendous damage from israel's more than 1,100, 1,200 air raids it would allow them to collect themselves again. if the fighting continues, hamas would be in a stronger position. israel wants to deal. if there's no deal, then as they keep saying, all options are still open. >> martin fletcher reporting from tel aviv, thanks so much. >>> we want to bring in our political panel. we have nationally syndicated radio talk show host and msnbc contributor michael and perry bacon, political editor. yes men, great to have you here. it seems that every president in modern times has had to deal with the tensions that flair up within the middle east. they always try to talk about overseeing a long-term cease-fire. as we should on the brink of those discussions right now, between gaza and israel, what is the broader impact of the idea that not only will there be a cease-fire, but the fact that israel's neighbors will verify their right to exist, which is the longer formatted problem? >> well, yea

with an israeli army spokesman who said there are also hamas organizations or hamas related infrastructure in that building. that's why they say they're targeting that building. but there are several arabic language news organizations based there. as you point out, carol, this is the second time the israelis have gone after that building. so other than what the israelis are saying, they say there are legitimate targets there, what we're seeing on the ground from our own reporters, that's escalating into a pretty serious development even as diplomats are trying to achieve some sort of cease-fire. when you see what's going on that cease-fire looks increasingly remote. let's see what happens behind the scenes there. >> i have heard, wolf, israel says if there's not some sort of cease-fire agreed to on behalf of gaza that a ground war will begin soon. what are you hearing? >> reporter: well, that's what the israelis are saying. the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu in his cabinet meeting yesterday made that point. they're not going to wait forever. we do know that there have been a

write the link between hamas and the muslim brotherhood is a concern. how vital is egypt's role given that in the gaza conflict right now? we know they're meeting right now. >> i think egypt is the key. they're the pivot here. what we're seeing is a situation where egypt really does not want to be put in a position where israel goes in to gaza. if that's the case, then the pressure is from within egypt from the muslim brotherhood, from the population, are going to be very intense. the last thing egypt wanted to do as a time when it needs to correct and deal with tremendous economic challenges is to be in a situation where if it threatens the peace treaty with israel, it guarantees it loses all the assistance from the outside. so they have a relationship with hamas because the muslim brotherhood and hamas are basically one in the same. hamas is on outgrowth of the egyptian muslim brotherhood. on the one hand, there's a link, there's a psychological connection, there's an emotional connection. on the other hand, they're the seen yore partner and hamas is a junior partner. the last thing

that in the next 24 hours there would be a cease fire. hamas officials are being even more specific. senior hamas official telling cnn that israel has agreed to the general terms but rejected the timing. hamas conditions, according to an official, are this. stop the air operation, air assaults and want the ground crossings, blockades to be opened up immediately. according to this hamas official israel is saying, okay, we'll stop the air operation but the ground crossings and blockade, we would like to do that gradually. that seems to be the sticking point right now. if you listen to egyptian and hamas officials, some optimism. israeli officials in tel aviv seem to be more cautious when it comes to describing any kind of progress in these talks. >> the rhetoric still coming from egypt is interesting, to say the least. this is a statement from egypt's president. he referred to, quote, the travesty of israel's aggression. not exactly the words of a peace maker. what does that say about the fragility of this cease fire? >> reporter: well, i think we should look beyond rhetoric. what's happening in eg
if hamas can force a truce. can actually make one happen. >> that's very possible, shepherd. at this hour the future of diplomacy remains very uncertain. what i can tell you for sure is that this air war today did intensity. today alone the militants in gaza fired more than 150 rockets into israel. one of them landed outside of the city of jerusalem in a palestinianville lienal. additionally another -- palestinian village and another landed in a tel aviv suburb. there were light injuries there. meanwhile, the south also came under repeated attacks. >> early this evening there was a loud blast and a rocket fired from gaza penetrated the apartment house. this is what is left of the bathroom. you can see the window destroyed. here is some of the concrete sheared off. take a look here. we are on the fifth floor. below me is the fourth floor. the rocket made its way one floor below. miraculously no one was injured. the occupants of the house made their way to a safe room, and we are protected from the explosion. as for one of the owners of the home, he is an ambulance driver, a volunteer, and

is one of the senior commanders of hamas' rocket unit. however, we have been speaking to our sources here. we spoke to people in the neighborhood, and frankly they've never heard of this man. so it's not altogether clear whether this man had anything to do with or who he is, even, at all. so it's all rather confusing at the moment. what does seem to be clear is that israel is starting to focus on after-effects of jabadi, who is the leader of hamas' military wing, it seems they are focusing on his subordinates throughout the gaza strip. another senior commander in hamas' military wing was killed in gaza today, so that may be an indication that israel is starting to focus not so much on the infrastructure, the buildings, but also the leaders of hamas. gary? >> i just mentioned the air strike on the media center in gaza. there was a bit of a controversy with the timing of the attack. what do you know about it? >> reporter: well, there were actually two attacks, but one of them occurred at about 6:30 in the morning when a lot of these journalists were getting ready for live shots on the roof
the 1950's. hamas released videos of rocket launches. the events of the last few weeks have silenced those who said they had forgotten how to fight israel. he said a land invasion be a political disaster for israel's prime minister. >> if they want a truce, we have demands and conditions. >> the border towns were quieter than gaza but still an ordeal. israel says it wants an end to rocket fire through cease-fire or military action. >> the endgame is clear. we want a situation where the civilian population of israel knows that no longer has to live in fear of incoming rocket fire from gaza. that can happen one way or another, but that is the goal we seek to defend our people. >> in gaza, israel attacked the building used by journalists. the raid killed a senior miti official in the -- a senior media official in the islamic group. another strike came in down the road. civilians on both sides need a ceasefire. political leaders in gaza and israel want to show that this was worth it. bbc news, gaza. >> there are diplomatic efforts to break a cease-fire. most of the attention is focused on cair
headquarters. hamas police headquarters when he saw this picture. it was a big blast and then a big ball of fire. now, i want to show you what's happened since then. the result of that air strike. i'm going to move out of the way here. we are about 11 stories up looking down on the main part of gaza. you are hearing now some of the traffic. there's only been a few cars, but it's a bit loud up here. i want to let you see the result of that blast. you're seeing the smouldering rubble there from the air strike last night on the police headquarters. we also know that another huge hamas building has been hit today, and can you see that building destroyed. half of it is standing, half of it collapsed. a very scary day for civilians as well. we are not seeing almost anybody in the streets. we were at the hospital overnight, and we saw quite a few people coming in there. again, the death toll now at 39 here, and we're talking about more than 250 people who have been injured by all this. >> how are they actually preparing there for the possibility of israeli troops coming in? >> reporter: well, b
being dragged behind the streets by members of hamas. wheatland bedard has an update for us now. reporter: right now, the very latest as we think that there will probably be a cease-fire. those are the latest reports. indications out of cairo and out of israel that we are very close to a deal between hamas and israel. brokered by the egyptians. you might say that this is penciled in right now. any indications on the ground that a cease-fire is close. an incredible increase of firing by both sides. so far today, more than 300 rockets flying out of gaza into israel. they have figured out how to defeat the iron dome missile defense system. right now we are getting an alarm here. in coming to this location, we are going to get our photographer to turn around. if you watch that picture, there is the interceptor going straight overhead. coming back here, towards the gaza strip. a huge explosion overhead right now. outgoing artillery right here, the cease-fire is in place and it is not holding. we haven't had been announced yet, but the latest indications are the earliest cease-fire wo
's involvement, qatar's involvement, the head of the hamas political wing is also involved. in temz of creating with israel, egypt is the main broker. we understand it has not been confirmed for us that an israeli envoy is at the table or at least has been and is involved in these talks, but the impression we're getting from the israeli side is that they're obviously involved in the negotiations and each side is looking very closely at what the other is proposing. has each side sent enough of a message that they can say, okay, this is it. we've sent our message. we want this and that, and now is the time to get off the military ramp? we'll see. >> you've covered this. when you take a look at this situation on the ground and you realize the israeli government is calling up 75,000 reservists, massing tens of thousands of troops and tanks near the border at the palestinian territory, what does this say to you in terms of a ground invasion? does it seem inevitable? what do you make of what is happening there in your experience? >> the experience is covering operation costs led four years ago and be
the home of a hamas commander. israel defense forces say there was a stockpile of explosives in the house. they also said they blew up palestinian headquarters, and hamas for a second time in two days, hamas aimed a rocket toward one of israel's big cities, the biggest, tel aviv, but the rocket was intercepted. sarah sydnor is live in gaza city. it's 9:00 p.m. there, how are people surviving on this night? it must be at a standstill right now. >> it was very quiet up until seconds before you talked to me. we're hearing booms of air strakes. we have also seen just behind me, four rockets go up, one after the other, and about ten minutes before that, we saw very, very close to us, we could actually hear the sounds of the rockets leaving the rocket launcher right over our heads towards israel. we know the sirens went off in israel after we saw the rockets here. so here it goes again. you can hear the booms now of air strikes. this is starting to start up again and it's not unusual that at night when it starts getting late here, this all starts to go full force. in the morning, about 4:00, 5:
500 hamas rockets have fallen in israel. israeli air strikes have killed at least 90 gazans. nbc's richard engel, stephanie gosk and ayman mohyeldin are in the region reporting the latest from gaza to tel aviv. first richard engel in gaza, what is the latest from your vantage point and on the cease-fire negotiations? >> we are hearing that there are serious cease-fire negotiations going on right now. when you're on the ground here in gaza it doesn't exactly feel that way. there have been many air strikes today, a media building was killed. israel is sort of -- [ inaudible ] on hamas leader or one palestinian militant at a time. sources who are involved in the israeli/palestinian negotiations working toward a cease-fire, these talks taking place in cairo have told nbc news they are serious, that they are making progress and that this is how the negotiations stand right at this moment. the israelis want a two-part deal, a two-stage deal. the first part would be an immediate hostility, immediate cessation of violence, both sides stop attacking each other. that would be unconditional
, and the president underscored the necessity of hamas ending fire into israel. that's the latest information. thank you. as i mentioned, more than 100 rockets have been fired from gaza into southern israel. you heard ayman refer to that happening today alone. many rockets fired into israel have been intercepted by the country's missile defense system. it is known as the iron dome. nbc news correspondent stephanie gosk joins me from tel aviv. this missile defense that we talk so much about, stephanie, is significant in many ways. it kept down the loss of life, which certainly would have escalated this crisis far faster than what we're seeing. >> reporter: yeah. it gives them some breathing room. if there was a rocket that landed here in tel aviv that killed a number of people or killed even more people down south besides the three that were killed in one attack, you'd be in a different situation. there would be more public pressure. right now you have tens of thousands troops waiting for the order to go in, and israel's in a position where they could call that order, depending on public pressure and
's next for israel and hamas? we'll break it down right here. and it's kind of puts our own thanksgiving in perspective, but we will say to you about our thanksgiving attention walmart shoppers. >> the country's biggest retailer may be in for a black friday blackout. walmart workers at 1,000 locations angry that stores are opening at 8:00 a.m. on thanksgiving, thinking about strike. >> when you hear how walmart treats their workers, you might fight back also. >> i just wanted to meet you and say he cut me off right away, started shaking his finger in my face, tell your dad not to use my name to make money. >> plus we have an awesome elbow of the day today. we have michael hastings time tricia rose time and now we have go time. >> cenk usinger is taking much needed vacation time but we're continuing the work of the young turks here, and how can we not put the attention towards the mideast where the fighting continues on and on. and here is a report explaining that from abc. >> israel continued pounding palestinian targets over gaza launching dozens of new missiles strikes. >> it its incre

of israel, quoting hamas saying the negotiations for the cease-fire have failed. and saying that 90% of demands, that was hamas is saying. 90% of demands have been met what are you hearing about the cease-fire? >> well our understanding is that those talks continue. even though those comments are being reported by israeli tv, coming from hamas, that the delegates from the palestinian side and from the israeli side. as well as egyptians and a qatari envoy are still talking about the cease-fire possibility. here on the ground you had leaders in this country, including the foreign minister here, saying that they're open to cease-fire options. but you also had the prime minister echoing what we heard from president obama. that these rocket attacks have to stop before there's going to be a cease-fire. and some fairly belligerent words from the defense minister here, ehud barak, who says he seeds the possibility of this effort broadening and becoming more aggressive, richard? >> what are you hearing from the military leaders. what are they saying at the moment that you're hearing, stephan
-stakes discussions between israeli and hamas leaders. speaking today egyptian prime minister hish m kandil said -- in gaza, palestinian medical officials report 95 people have been killed in gaza including 23 children. for the second straight day, israel bombed a building housing local and international media. the target of the attack was a commanding member of an islamic jihad group who also had an apartment in the building. meanwhile, hamas continues to send rockets deep into israel. last night, israel's iron dome intercepted two rockets headed for tel aviv. yesterday, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu had tough talks on twitter writing we are exacting a heavy price from hamas and the terrorist organizations. the idf is prepared for a significant expansion of its operation. in a press gaggle on route to cambodia this morning, deputy national security adviser ben rhodes says the white house's goal is to have nations with influence in the region speak for deescalation. speaking on sunday, the president urged israel to avoid a ground invasion. >> israel has every right to expect it does
